Helmet - "Meantime"

1992 seems like so long ago. When this album was released I was not yet eleven years old, but I knew it was heavy, and so by that standard, it was good. Here it is, almost 20 years later, and this album STILL holds up. I think it has excellent riffs, and I also think that John Stanier is one of the more under-rated drummers out there. I know that for some Helmet is an acquired taste, but this album has blown me away since '92, with no signs of stopping any time soon. It is a great, heavy, head banging album. Yes, I know that it is partly because of Helmet that crap like Deftones, Limp Bizkit, and the like are around and so popular, but I don't hold that against them.
